DJ Jessso in da House, Y’all

I have to learn to think before I tweet. Last week I saw a tweet from BBC Radio 6 for songs that make you think, cry and dance. I was in my office avoiding doing work at the time and this was a great way to procrastinate. I thought it was just a general Twitter discussion and maybe it would get briefly mentioned on the radio. I wasn’t expecting to be emailed, questioned further about my music selections and then asked to be interviewed by Lauren Lavern for the Biorhythms session on Tuesday morning. I would have put more thought into my music selection.

But now I have been on British radio! And BBC Radio 6 for that matter – I’ve gone national, none of this local radio business for me. I have recently been contemplating reviving my 108 challenges and “Be interviewed on the radio” would be a great addition. Plus I can tick it off straight away! That’s always a win.

For those of you who care, my song choices were:

  1. A song that makes me dance – Super Stylin’ by Groove Armada. This song makes me think back to when I was a teenager getting up early on a Sunday morning to watch Video Hits with my brother. Always makes me want to dance.)
  2. A song that makes me cry – The Ship Song by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. This song reminds me of my Dad and singing along in his car on the way to Bunnings. It makes me a little home sick. Plus it is such a nice love song – I want a handsome man to sing this to me one day.
  3. A song that makes me think – Deconstruction by Fanfarlo. A song about pulling the craziness of life apart and then watching it all magically fall into place again – this resonates with me and my less-than-stable lifestyle. It’s all going to be ok.

So that was a fun (nerve wracking) way to spend a Tuesday morning. I sounded like a man, as per usual, with my croaky voice. Luckily no one knows who I am in England. Although I received a messages from friends saying, “Ummm… are you on the radio?!” FAME.

Here’s the News

Three weeks of holiday eating = 1.5 kilogram weight gain. Not as bad as I thought but I think a lot of my muscle is turning into floppy flab so numbers are deceiving. Hopefully my 7km run this morning will get things back in shape soon.

Hint of the day = job interviews in French aren’t fun if you can’t speak French. Let’s just say my nerves got to me and my French speaking ability is no where near as good as I hoped it was. I haven’t received an official “You failed” but I’m prepared for it. Shame really… the office looked really cool with dark wood panelled floors and open work spaces. Noisy though. I couldn’t concentrate and write under such conditions.

Weather in Paris = rainy, humid, cloudy and warm.

Tomorrow = Mum and Dad arrive back in Paris for the final leg of their holiday before heading back to Perth on Friday. Will be hard to say goodbye, me thinks.

Maybe Not

I am going to downsize my previous post to say that I think I have been offered a second job interview. Further consideration and translation of French emails has made me realise that I may not be the ultimate winner just yet. But who wouldn’t want to give me a job when I have these fashion styles?
